Hallo Matthew Shilling,

For that process to be successful, I mean importing PSTs into ms exchange 2010 using powershell, you will need to have exchange management shell scripts. You will then use the following procedure:

  • Assuming that you are running on a 64 bit windows platform, you will need to install outlook 2010 which should also be 64 bit on the exchange server, and you should make sure that the installation is directed to the directory that has the 64 bit outlook.
  • You will then have to enable  permissions which are to be used by the group of users of that particular mailbox, and for that use the following command:

New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Name "Import Export Mailbox Admins" `
-SecurityGroup "Mailbox Support" `
-Role "Mailbox Import Export"

  • Thereafter you will then import the PST file and put it into the appropriate mailbox, and for that use the command below:

Import-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath pstfilepath -Identity exchangealias

That should enlighten you.
